The Brit Oval Cricket Ground London
The Brit Oval Cricket Ground London, or more popularly The Oval, is one of the most famous cricket grounds in the world. It is situated at Kennington in London and is home to the Surrey County Cricket Club.

The Oval is one of the most historic cricket grounds in England and primarily so for it was here that England played their first Test at home. The test was played against Australia in 1880 and England sealed it with a memorable win. This ground also treasures many more milestones such as the first ever double century made in cricket was made at The Oval by Australia's Billy Murdoch.



The ground has hosted test matches between England and every test playing country other than Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. Every tour traditionally ends with the final test being played at The Oval. The Oval hosted its first ODI in 1973. The match was played between England and the West Indies. Since then the stadium has hosted many significant international ODIs including matches of the 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999 World Cups. Interestingly, an international Day/Night match has never been played at the venue.

Apart from cricket, the ground is also used for football and baseball matches. The first ever FA cup final was held at The Oval in 1872. A sports lover's paradise, this grand stadium is indeed one of the most famous cricket grounds in the world.
